University of Waterloo, Canada

Updated with quotes for February 2019:

Classic:
As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy.
— Abraham Lincoln, 1858.

 

Direct:
Equality means taking turns talking and listening, acting and being acted upon, accepting and asserting the differences between self and other, for the sake of a result no one could foretell.
Lecture at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, 1988.

Garden moment for February 2019:

Red maple trees in northern Florida have scarcely lost last season's leaves when this season's buds burst into bloom. This same species grows as far north as Newfoundland, where trees come into bloom about four months later.
